Great Barrier Reef flats fishing with Trophy Hunter 838 & 836 stickbait rods
Some photos and video of a recent trip fishing the flats of the Great Barrier Reef using small slow sinking and floating stickbaits. Soft rod tips combined with a strong bottom end are critical for this type of fishing given the small lures used to catch large, hard fighting reef fish in very shallow water.
